It really goes on which os you like, but when we got our g5 desktop, we got a HUGE discount for me being a student..Even though the computers not mine, it was for my dad, we still got the discount..Just call them, and they take your name and school, make sure you go there, and I think its 15% off...But dont get excited, it could be less...But I know Apple gives a big student discount.

I think the campus bookstore sells fairly good laptops and at a massive discount too.

If non of your friends have a Mac, dont get it! If the majority has it, then go ahead and get it, because trust me, you dont want a mac, and not know anyone who doesnt have one..My dad has so many problems with his mac, and I always have to help him out, but sometimes I dont know how, and no one I know, even has a mac..So I have to go on forums and crap..
